There's a party going on! Learners examine an image of a birthday party and answer 10 analysis questions. They employ a variety of math skills including telling time, days of the week, division, subtraction, multiplication, addition, shapes, and evens/odds. Although these concepts are at play, learners don't necessarily need to understand the more complex ones. Questions are worded such that they can solve them without understanding the mathematical operation. An example of division is, "How many cupcakes can each person have?". This is a fun way to practice a wide array of skills in a real-world scenario.
First graders examine the days of the week and discuss how to capitalize the holiday dates and real-life calendar events. They identify information about a date written on the board, sing the song "There Are Seven Days in a Week" to the tune of "My Darling Clementine," and identify words in a sentence that need to be capitalized. Next they cut out pictures from a handout and sequence the days of the week.
Pupils create a classroom calendar using digital pictures and construct a days of the week book. Students hold the numbers 1-31 and their picture is taken, then placed in a calendar to be used in the classroom. They also make a fan book with the days of the week and activities listed on each day of what pupils do that specific day.
Using a variety of mathematical models, 1st graders play partner games to compose and decompose the number ten. They practice counting all and counting on with number lines and 10 frames. Instructions for games are not included, but there is a list of several resources for teaching number sense.
